Lawnmower Taco

First things first. This is not my creation. I take no credit whatsoever for it. LifeAsMom was the one who created it. I just made it ;) You can see her receipe here But allow me to break it down and show what I used. When we ate it we just put taco sauce on top. But LifeAsMom says you can add other items too it too.

1 pound ground beef
yellow corn tortilla chips
2 cups nacho taco blend cheese
1 14oz can chicken broth
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1/4 cup all purpose flour

Crunch tortilla chips.

Brown some ground beef (She says use turkey as an alternative)

Then add your taco seasoning and chicken broth

then the flour

Let cook for a little bit until thicken

Layer 1/2 meat, then 1/2 cheese, more chips, meat and then finally cheese. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly, then enjoy!

Menu 4/18-4/23

Now that I have a laptop maybe my menus will be posted with more frequency. I was pretty lazy before because it would mean having to turn on the computer and then because it has an error when it boots up have to make sure to boot the "master" and then sign my password because I have it locked and then wait for the computer to finally be ready to work. This was probably a 5 minute process. I'm just lazy. But now with my laptop I can now just boot it and sign my password and be ready to go in 2 minutes. What have I become ;) But the real reason for getting a laptop was because I'm going back to school. I'm pursuing my MBA with Grand Canyon University. It is an online school and I'm really excited about getting it! One of my life goals was to get a Master's. Any way. On to the menu! Be sure to check out for more plans!

Monday - Stirfry veggies with rice

Tuesday - Pizza Pasta Casserole from the freezer

Wednesday - Lawnmower Taco

Thursday - Hamburgers on the grill, pending weather.

Friday - homemade pizza

Saturday - completely depends on what the weather is and what I feel like. I'll probably be working on Easter lunch stuff :)

BLT Bites

I take no credit for these at all. My co-worker Karen from AZ made them once and I had to have the recipe! They are so easy and so yummy. I of course like both of those options :)

1 pound bacon cooked and crumbled (or use Real Bacon Bits)
1/2 cup of Miracle Whip
1/4 cup chopped green onion
2 Tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
24 cherry tomatoes

Slice top of tomato and scoop out seeds. Mix together remaining ingredients. Stuff tomatoes and serve cold.
